The Edward K. Tryon Company was a sporting goods retailer and wholesaler located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were in business under various Tryon names from 1811 (Philadelphia had a population of 97,000) until sometime in the mid to late 1950s. Edw. K. Tryon was the largest sporting goods retailer in the United States and possibly the world for some time. Their primary business was firearms and hunting related items, but they also sold and produced a wide variety of outdoors and sports items. They had a 125th anniversary celebration in 1936 and produced catalogs until at least some time in the mid to late 1950's.
